      I am going to be in Rome the middle of September of this year. I know of the renovation work being done on the fountain. Just looking for a timeline update as to how the renovations are coming along. Everything I see is from just after the work started. Even if it isn't finished I will still be making a point of visiting the fountain.

    • Transport Ciampino to Termini

      by fingodav Online Now Yesterday

      I am very concerned that I have not allowed enough time to get to Termini from the airport. I arrive Ciampino on a Tuesday at 16.50. Do you think I will have time to catch the Terravision transfer leaving at 17.15 ? Also, this bus is scheduled to arrive Termini at 18.05...do you think there is enough time to find the correct platform for the Naples train
      leaving at 18.23 ? Obviosly, everything has got to be on time for me to have any chance, and I am considering getting a taxi from the airport to Ciampini rail station, where the travel time to Termini is only 16 minutes.
      Any ideas welcome, the alternative seems to be to cancel my Rome - Naples train ticket and get a later train.

    • ID and St. Peter's clothing?

      by Rabbits123 Online Now May 27, 2015 at 2:06 PM

      Just wondering do you have to carry ID with you in Rome at all times? And what would be acceptable, I'm sure my UK driving license wouldn't be accepted right?

      And I'm also wanting to visit St. Peter's but I've heard there's a strict allowance on the clothes you wear? So would anyone be able to give me and my boyfriend any ideas about what to wear. we're going in mid-July so it should be quite warm... I have maxi dresses that are long but they don't cover my shoulders. I was thinking about wearing leggings, tank top and a kimono but then I heard tank tops aren't acceptable either... Any advice is much appreciated..

      Oh and sorry another question, can you buy tickets to get into the colosseum , forum, Vatican museum online before we go on holiday or would we not be able to do that? And also the same question about those travel passes that are apparently 24€ for 7 days? Sorry for all the questions haha

      Me and my boyfriend have found a cheap holiday in Rome for 1 week on the 17th July. The hotel says it's 20 minutes from the city. The main tourist attractions are 3hr walk away or 30min drive. Just wondering are taxis cheap and easy to get? and would walking be easy, I wouldn't mind walking that long..
      And is there any 'nightlife' in Rome. I don't mean nightclubs but just so we're not stuck in the hotel (I'm 18, boyfriend is 22).. and can anyone give an average on how much money you would need for one week? in £ or even euros..Our hotel is self catering so...

      sorry for all the questions but I'm clueless about rome

      Rome to Tuscany

      by JohnDeRose Online Now Apr 29, 2015 at 5:53 PM

      Hello,

      I will be taking away two days from Rome to go to Florence for four days, extending my stay by two days. I will be renting a car when I leave Rome and I would like to know what are some good areas to make a pit stop and observe the scenery, its not a problem if its 5-10 min away so please let me know all the good sites along the road to Tuscany. I'll try to make 2,3 maybe even 4 stops or maybe 1 long one.

      Have you rented a car in Italy? Is there a company which is better than the others or are they all good? I see its 500$ cad to rent a Giulietta. I need the Giulietta for the luggage space.

      europcar.com/DotcarClient/st...

      I did the calculation for 1L/2.10 CAD
      Rome to Tuscany = 277 km
      Giulietta 6.4L/100 km

      6.4 x 2.77 x 2.10 = Rounded answer is 40$ CAD

      70$ (rental/day)+ 40$ (gas) + 10$ extra = 120$
      3 train tickets = 150$

      = 270$

      Basically its not for the savings its just for the freedom of stopping whenever we want. I know they're all manuals but is there anything else I should know about renting cars in Italy?

      I have a tripped booked to Rome for May 3rd. I will be traveling with a 20 month old child. Is it realistic to consider the train and then tram as a transportation option for us or should I just take a cab into Trastevere? The hotel street is :Via degli Orti di Trastevere . Do taxis at FCO airport go into that part of Trastevere? How much will the taxi run me?

      Additionally, I am considering doing a vatican tour and Colisseum tour? Will I be allowed to bring an umbrella stroller into these facilities? Thanks in advance!
